I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was really informative and kept my interest the entire way. My Teacher's support throughout the course was amazing and invaluable. The materials were easy to read and well structured. The distance learning really suited me as I work fulltime but I still had plenty of time to get the required assignments completed on time. Thanks so much IDI!
